In 2014 Angola issued a circulating commemorative coin.

It was bimetallic, having a nickel-plated steel center within a brass-plated steel ring.


It commemorated Queen Rainha Njinga A Mbande.

The attractive motif design on the reverse of the 20 kwanzas coin fitted in perfectly with the designs of the regular circulation coins.

In 2015 two more circulating commemorative coins were issued.

They celebrated the 40th anniversary of Angola's independence.


The 50 kwanzas coin was made of nickel-clad steel.

Again it had an attractive motif on the reverse.

The 100 kwanzas coin was made of brass-plated steel.

This time the word 'kwanzas' was capitalised on both coins of the set.


The common obverse design featured a soldier and a peasant raising the national flag.
